Delicious food that is not inexpensive but, we felt, worth the price. We will eat here again.
After we asked for a French Press, server indicated that coffee wasn’t served due to water issues. However, not long after, he started coming out from the kitchen with French presses in hand while he purposefully passed right by our table. When we finally asked him if the water issue was resolved, he was quipped to shrug & said, “ I don’t know, they don’t tell me anything”. He didn’t even consider revisiting our request for coffee. Furthermore, he only came twice to our table to check how we’re doing. We weren’t impressed with the service.
My husbands chicken parm tasted like it was soaked in black pepper, my cosmopolitan wasn't anything like it should have been and not only was it super loud but they were playing repetitive club music.
Fabulous time at your restaurant
We will be back
Food was great, beer list was great, service was excellent.
Service was rushed. Wait staff didn’t have a clear understanding of cheeses and beers. Kept pushing us along, when it started to get uncomfortable. Skipped desert, which we normally would have.
The restaurant may have a French menu but there is nothing French about it:
Charcuterie consists of prosciutto and mortadella (Italian), not French specialties.
Moules Normandy have nothing of a traditional Normandy-based recipe: No cream, and Roquefort cheese, which is not original from Normandy.
This is just another typical restaurant that believes that slapping French names on a menu makes it French.
Very good meal.:onion soup was super cheesy like I like it the pear salad was a good seasonal choice. Also had a flight of beers which I loved. My husband had the beef short ribs which were falling apart tender. Service was excellent! Will definitely be back.
Lyon Hall never disappoints. The wine choices are always excellent. Tuna tartar as an app. Trout almandine for entree. My guests had a salmon entree. I like crisp white wine with fish. My guests liked the Pinot noir with the salmon. Creme brûlée and a slice of cake for dessert. Everything was high quality and perfectly done. This is an Arlington treasure.
Server was not friendly until it was time to get the check so he could get a nice tip. He also broke the cork on a $300 bottle of wine I brought in. He didn’t even apologize even though he caused it.
Awesome place for any event!
I always enjoy my meal at Lyon Hall - and my friend enjoyed his birthday steak very much. However - I think in future I will try and stay downstairs - the upstairs area doesn't have quite the same ambiance as the downstairs. Love the trout. Missed the chocolate mousse on the dessert menu this time though.
The food is pretty mediocre. I had heard the burgers were topnotch, but honestly it tasted like a fast food burger. The soup was room temperature. The cheeses were tasty, but nothing extraordinary. The sausages did not offer the wonderful German flavor such as the Heidelberg Bakery selection. Go to the Heidelberg if you want a true wurst.
excellent food for the area. french bistro with solid beer selection and descent service. went for a business happy hour and dinner and ll parties were satisfied. we had a vegetarian in the group who was critical of the limited vegetarian selection, but happy with the quality of his meal. steak and mussels were great.
Went for my friend's birthday and was pleasantly surprised to see they brought her cake and a mimosa just because I checked that box here on OpenTable. It was very sweet.
Wonderful food and service! Out dinner there made for a special anniversary outting.
The food/drinks and customer service was great. The only issue was the tables were not prepared for a group to be sat together. Reservation was for a birthday dinner party. The restaurant did not offer the dessert after dinner was served. Went somewhere else for the dessert and candle.
Service hiccups: I ordered a vodka martini up with olives, no vermouth and received a martini with extra vermouth. I asked for a replacement, and the waiter seemed annoyed. I think he thought I had not said "no vermouth," but I know I did because I have been ordering this drink regularly for many years, and the 3 people at the table heard my order. My replacement drink was watery.
Entire group of six for lunch were quite impressed with the food. We will definitely be back!
Camilo is a fabulous server and a great asset to the restaurant. Bravo!
Fantastic all around!
A neighborhood gem....excellent food, great service and charming atmosphere. A definitely recommend visting this great little place.
We enjoyed our meal on a Friday evening.
Amazing food and drinks. The service is also great.
We went during the Oktoberfest celebration, so it was quite loud. However, our meals were delicious and very generous. My husband had the pork shank special which he absolutely loved and I had pork schnitzel which was also delicious, my only "complaint" is that the serving was much too large. Lyon Hall may want to think about offering half and whole portions...Overall, it was a great dining experience and I would recommend to anyone who likes German/French country type food.
Oktoberfest tonight. Pork shank and pork schnitzel Well prepared and served. Portions we good sized as in not overwhelming.
We really had a delightful evening. The service and food was outstanding. One burger was overdone but they took care of it quickly and followed up to make sure it was correct. Highly recommend the SJF cocktail and the Saffron and Shrimp Mussels.
My former colleague and I enjoyed a lovely brunch here today. He had the lobster and scrambled eggs with the yogurt parfait. I had the quiche and began with a salad with salmon. Little did I know there’s a salad accompanying the quiche! I’m stuffed but in the best way. We both vow to return and check out the rest of the menu!
My go-to place for tuna tartare and steak frites! Always fabulous. Good wine, good service, wonderful food.
Always a pleasure dining at Lyon Hall for a quiet lunch. The oyster special on Mondays is great!
Such an amazing place for brunch!
Always love Lyon Hall! No better mussels in the area. Welcoming and smart team - always great at pairing beverages with food.
Food was very good but service was a bit slow and didn’t seem to be for any reason. Waiter seemed to flit by a lot
Great choices. Waiter didn't understand that one of us wanted an appetizer of a dish as listed and 2 of us wanted the entree version so he brought us 3 entree versions so too much food and it was thrown out.
Excellent service and great meals. Thank you!
Excellent food, great staff and good vibes.
Entrees not as good as in we have experienced here in the past, including steaks which is why we go there. Do not recommend their cauliflower schnitzel. Neither dessert ordered was great.
For some reason service was slow during this visit. The waiter said it was due to restaurant week and the large number of fixed price menu orders that included appetizer, entree and desert. We were there an hour by the time we received the entrees. I have been to Lyon Hall several other times and the service was fine.
